  • Musketeers
rdfs:comment
  • Musketeers are the standard Gunpowder Infantry of the File:Enlightenment age small.jpg Enlightenment Age. They upgrade from Arquebusiers and are trained at the Barracks. Like their predecessors, Musketeers are effective against all types of Infantry, but very weak against Cavalry. Musketeers complement the slower moving Fusiliers, which are much more effective against Cavalry, but lose when fighting Infantry. Compared to Arquebusiers, Musketeers receive an additional damage bonus against Heavy Infantry, to counter the Heavy Infantry's new ranged attack with Fusiliers.

  • They were created in 1622 when King Louis XIII furnished a company of light cavalry with muskets. The Musketeers fought in battle both on foot (infantry) and on horseback (cavalry). They formed the royal guard for the king while he was outside of the royal residences.
  • Their high esprit de corps and can-do attitude gained them royal favour and they became a popular fixture at court and in Paris. Shortly after their creation, Cardinal Richelieu created a bodyguard unit for himself. So as not to offend the King with a perceived sense of self-importance, Richelieu did not name them Garde du Corps like the King's personal guards but rather Musketeers after the Kings' junior guard cavalry. This was the start of a bitter rivalry between both corps of Musketeers. At the cardinal's death in 1642, the company passed to his successor Cardinal Mazarin. At Mazarin's death in 1661, the cardinal's Musketeers passed to Louis XIV to the disgust of both the King's Musketeers and the Cardinal's Musketeers.

  • Their high esprit de corps and can-do attitude gained them royal favour and they became a popular fixture at court and in Paris. Shortly after their creation, Cardinal Richelieu created a bodyguard unit for himself. So as not to offend the King with a perceived sense of self-importance, Richelieu did not name them Garde du Corps like the King's personal guards but rather Musketeers after the Kings' junior guard cavalry. This was the start of a bitter rivalry between both corps of Musketeers. At the cardinal's death in 1642, the company passed to his successor Cardinal Mazarin. At Mazarin's death in 1661, the cardinal's Musketeers passed to Louis XIV to the disgust of both the King's Musketeers and the Cardinal's Musketeers. The Musketeers were subsequently reorganized as a guard cavalry regiment of two companies. The King's Musketeers became the first company, popularly known as Grey Musketeers from the color of their horses while the Cardinal's Musketeers became the second company, known as Black Musketeers because they rode black horses. The Musketeers were the among the most popular of the military companies of the Ancien RĂ©gime. This popularity was due to the lower entrance requirements. The senior guard units were in effect closed to all but the most senior and wealthy of French nobles so for the vast majority of French nobles (many of whom lived in genteel poverty), service in the Musketeers was the only way to join a cavalry unit in the Royal Household and perhaps catch the King's eye. In 1776, the Musketeers were eliminated by Louis XVI. Reformed in 1789, they were eliminated shortly afterward. They were reformed on July 6, 1814, and definitively eliminated on January 1, 1816. Decades later, starting in 1844, this group was the subject of the now-famous serial publication The Three Musketeers.
